    Note: I did not buy this rocket from here, I got it via Hobby Lobby.

    Great rocket. I flew it several times with the stock version on B and C motors, and it flew high and straight. I modified mine for higher performance now so it flies even higher and faster!

    Mods: Removed the engine mount and retainer, repurposed a centering ring for an engine block, and used a pair of pliers to bend the engine hook to better fit the newer config. replaced the parachute with 2 streamers, so it now packs much better and comes down a little faster. filed down the tabs on the fins from the inside, allowing the body tube to act as a 24mm engine mount. instead of A8, B4 , B6, C5, and C6 motors, it now runs on C11, D12, and E12. I repainted it and sprayed some glossy ceramic sealer on it to give it a nice shine. first modified flight I did C11, and it went perfectly, so I tried a D12 and it went equally well. the E12 kept it out of sight for quite while, and I was grateful to have a huge park as my launch site so I was able to recover it.

    overall, great rocket stock and for modding! highly recommend.

    Great rocket. My first level 1 and one great flyer! I just recently put it on a 3″ x 48″ streamer and it works great and doesn’t float away like it used to. My streamer is a DANGER barrier from Home Depot. Works great and looks cool! 👍

    It’s a great rocket and flies very well! I use a C6-5 engine in it and it goes out of sight!

    Handsome rocket

    The Crossfire looks great, is easy to assemble, and flies. It’s first flight was with a B engine and it drifted two soccer field widths away, so the next flight was with a C engine and it drifted three and a half soccer fields. I’m not sure I’ll put a C engine in it if I want to see it again, but due to temptation to do so I bought another.

    Small but fun

    I got this with the Amazon launch kit like others. It is pretty easy to build. After I applied the decals, I used the remaining outlines of the images to trim out the other fin.

    Warning – as others have stated, do not use even a B6 unless you have a large recovery area. This thing is light weight and flies high! This actually makes it very versatile. There are lots of engine options to suit your launch site and conditions.

    I cut a small hole in the top of the parachute so it doesn’t drift as far. It could probably use a smaller parachute even a streamer.

    Cool one stage

    This rocket is a very good high flyer. My only complaint is that I’d prefer water slide decals over the stickers that are used.

  8. Fearedeffect

    Definitely a rocket

    I flew this in a massive field. C6 vanished in clouds. Low wind flew straight rediculous flight ability. Recommend small engines unless you wanna see it go into orbit if that’s the case c6 be my guest sounds like fun wanna try?

    Gotta get this one!

    This is a must have rocket! It’s pointy nose, added tail cone, and fin tabs add so much character! Get it! Build it! Fly it!
